Will their chance for a holiday love story make Santa’s list?

An excerpt from The Real Gift of the Santa Train:
Saving the Day, and So Much More
With reinforcements on the way, now Paul was free to do his best to recreate that heart-melting smile of Susan’s as often as he possibly could.
He turned and almost crashed right into her, and that did the trick.
“Oh, I’m sorry!” she said, drawing back, but not before Paul caught the enticing aroma of her hair, still trying to escape from the cutest pink scarf on the planet. “I didn’t mean to sneak up on you like that. I’ve got six people on the way, and my friend Will promised to bring coffee and hot chocolate. We may have to wait on the sugary treats, but help will be here in about five minutes.”
“Hey, that’s great! I’ve got four guys headed in. A couple of them are bringing tools in case the holiday village needs a bit of a remodel.”
Susan closed her eyes and held one hand over her heart, which gave Paul time to swoon a bit over how beautiful she looked, even in the overcast morning light.
